Reviews

"My Last Continent" feels refreshingly different, vivid and immediate. Midge Raymond has an extraordinary gift for description that puts the reader bang in the middle of the action, bang in the middle of its dangerous and endangered world. Her clean, spare prose pulls us irresistibly into the story and the wider issues it raises. She is clearly a writer in command of her craft.
--M.L. Stedman, author of The Light Between Oceans"
There is a romance about faraway, desperate places, about isolation, about ice and snow. Add penguins and you have Midge Raymond s elegant My Last Continent, alove story about the Antarctic and the creatures, humans included, who are at home there. Half adventure, half elegy, and wholly recommended. --Karen Joy Fowler, author of We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves"

My Last Continent is an original and entirely authentic love story. It is a love triangle with Antarctica as the third party, literally and metaphorically. Midge Raymond takes us, physically and emotionally, into an unfamiliar world a world that has much to teach us. She deftly interweaves a compelling drama with a gentle and subtle love story. It's a mature novel, one that recognizes that love is seldom simple or exclusive, and that the things that bring us together can also keep us apart. --Graeme Simsion, author of The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect"
